CINCINNATI - Lace up those running shoes: The Girls on the Run Fall 5K zooms into Cincinnati on Saturday, Nov. 16 at Sawyer Point.

The local nonprofit organization inspires girls to be healthy and confident, using fun programs and events that creatively integrate running. This year, more than 1,000 will participate in their very first 5K run. We at #9Fitness sure hope it won’t be their last!

The fun starts at 8 a.m., when race participants and teams will enjoy a pre-race celebration that includes music, dancing, tiara decorating, tattoos (temporary, of course), sign-making, hair-decorating and much more.  After the party, runners hit the pavement for the 10 a.m. kickoff.

Interested in signing up? You’re not too late! Visit the GOTR website for registration, course information and packet pick up updates

The GOTR staff will be tweeting from Sawyer Point the day of the race, so if you sign up, we’d love to follow along with you. Just use the hashtag #9Fitness to share your experience at the GOTR Fall 5k with the #9Fitness community.
